It is hard to believe the 2014-15 year is almost finished. And what a year it has been!

This year we welcomed  10 new families (including mine).  The teachers worked hard to do a lot of in-house collaboration and in addition to their amazing classroom work they completed documentation of all of the standards for every grade. Thanks to the teachers help we relicensed our schools and got our new report card figured out. 


In addition to these accomplishments…

We had our first ever Curriculum nights, with valuable Q&A from parents. Student are safer than ever with students learning how to deal with fire emergencies and many parents participating in first aid and CPR training. Fine and Performing Arts collaborations across campuses has led to increased examples of student creativity inlcuding two outstanding productions which were well attended and supported by parents. The library has been open and busy on the last Sunday of each month with families coming to pick out books and read together. We have two, beautiful buildings that are open and allow our students to appreciate school in the context of  nature. We have had great parent involvement for extra curricular activities and especially After School Activities.  Student Led Conferences were amazing. And we believe that our centralized blog is going well and gives students a chance to reflect upon and showcase their work (you really should see it!)

All of these latter accomplishments have something in commmon, PARENTS. Our partnership with parents makes learning complete. Parent involvement connects the circle between an educational institution and the most important institution of all, the family. Thank you all for a great year.
